Comment:
Been on Saphris for a little over 6 months and agree that it has far outweighed all other treatments I have tried for my manic episodes. However I am now experiencing what is known as a flat affect. Kind of scary. Is this normal?

Comment:
Just one week and extreme agitation, hallucinations and not knowing who my own family is. Crazy behavior like taking the sheets off the bed and hiding clothing items. Insisting all electric powered items be turned off like the tv or computer or ceiling fans. Not able to sleep and is causing paranoid feelings that I have never had before.
